It is somehow appropriate that Neiman Marcus is rooted in Dallas. Shopping is one of those activities Dallas is known for, evidenced by all the malls, markets, and shopping centers. Check out the West End MarketPlace or the North Dallas Galleria to get started.
Texas has managed to blend farming and industry as few have, and Dallas could be the epicenter of this balance. Supporting technology, industry and a thriving farming community Dallas affords opportunities for everyone. The largest farmer’s market in the country is right in the heart of Dallas and has operated since the late 1800s. In Dallas, if it ain’t broke then it don’t need fixed!
If a desire to enter into the corporate arena and big business was an impetus behind your move, then you apparently did your homework. Just a few of the mega-corporations that call Dallas home are the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Frito-Lay and Rolex. In Dallas that is often called opportunity.
No, this isn’t about the mile-high club! The saying is that ‘everything is bigger in Dallas,’ and that includes the DFW airport. Yes, the airport is worth mention and once you see it you will understand. In sheer size, it covers more area (land mass) than Manhattan and has the world’s largest parking lot. Dallas is home to both American & Southwest Airlines.
If it was anywhere else but Dallas it might be odd that the first skyscraper to adorn Texas is just a short ways from that aforementioned farmer’s market! Remember, everything is bigger in Texas and the Dallas skyline is just more evidence of that fact. Home to over 250 high-rise buildings, the Dallas skyline is more than picture-worthy.
